DevStack already does depend on both EPEL and RDO just to run on
RHEL6.  The problem is keeping up with trunk we still have to handle
the situation where requirements.txt specifies a min-version that is
not in either repo yet.  So we still have to solve the problem or hold
up bumping versions on downstream packaging.
